Rain Came


Rain came
and spread
Filled the wind with fragrances
The petals of flowers dancing in its touch
You smell the fresh – soaked soil.
Fragrances strange badge
Fragrances from other places, distant
Fragrances from other eras
Roses red, like blood
Bowed, they keep hidden secrets
But not badging

Oblivion, oil painting, Nadia Pronina

Rain came
And the cold wind embraces you,
It awakens forgotten eras,
Immersed in the thread of Oblivion
Bowed
Secrets
Motionless
Look!
Red
Unspoken
Feel!
Do you remember?

Original version of the poem “Rain Came” written by Alexandra Zevgiti

Ήρθε βροχή

Ήρθε βροχή
και σκόρπησε
Γέμισε ο αγέρας ευωδιές
Τα πέταλά των λουλουδιών χορεύουν στ’ άγγιγμα του
Μυρίζεις τα φρέσκο – ποτισμένο χώμα.
Ευωδιές παράξενες σαλεύουν
Ευωδιές απ’ άλλους τόπους, μακρινούς
Ευωδιές απ’ άλλες εποχές
Ρόδα κόκκινα, σαν τα αίμα
Σκυφτά, κρατούν κρυμμένα μυστικά,
Μα δεν σαλεύουν
Ήρθε βροχή
Και σ’ αγκαλιάζει κρύος ο αγέρας,
Σου ξυπνά ξεχασμένες εποχές,
Βυθισμένες στο νήμα της λήθης
Σκυφτά
Μυστικά
Ασάλευτα
Κοίτα!
Κόκκινα
Αμίλητα
Νιώσε!
Θυμάσαι;
